Pain, like a living entity.

Two years or slightly more ago, I began to feel pain in my arm and hips.  I passed out in the driveway on the hottest day of the year.  I lost weight, and gained weight.  I went through reconstructive surgery and suffered a few infections that landed me in the hospital.  My oncologist discovered that I had high protein in my urine and checked me out for diabetes.  I was also checked out for lupus because it fit all my symptoms.  The aha test was negative and I didn't have diabetes so they sent me to a rhuematologist  who told me that I had fibromyalgia.  That didn't feel right.  In my heart I knew there was something else going on.  But since I see an oncologist every three months I figured if it was cancer they would have caught it.  I was suffering from pain, and the pain was causing fear.  Below I tell you how the dictionary defines pain.  Then I will tell you the was it really is.

This is the definition of pain as defined in the Merriam-Websters Dictionary:
